An inspired new take on Doom style shooters, as seen through the prism of bullet hell shoot ‘em-ups and roguelikes.

Mothergunship on PC, PS4, and Xbox One is a surprisingly tense and fast-paced shooter that blends the best of classic FPS gameplay with a hardcore roguelike.

The game doesn't quite end when all of the story missions are over. Other than the endless mode (which is where the gun combos can really get crazy), there's an endgame that allows the player to keep going, leveling up and facing harder and harder ships. There are also a slew of planned updates, including more guns and two-player co-op, but what is present at launch feels like a solid foundation. There are some odd and annoying design decisions, and it can feel frustrating to rarely get to really let loose with the gun creations, but damn if I don't keep coming back to go through a few ships and see what destruction I can cause.

It's almost there in many respects which make the prospect of a sequel awfully alluring but it's executed well enough to make it a good game in its own right.

But for a dash of repetition, both in gameplay after a long period and the slightly disappointing variety of enemies, Mothergunship is really a great game. The story takes a back seat to the gameplay, so if you're looking for a story focused experience you're in the wrong place. However if an FPS rogue-lite with gameplay in the vein of Quake and the ability to create a gun that shoots both lightning and floating grenades is your thing, you could do a lot worse than Mothergunship.

Mothergunship is a game that takes something from almost every genre. Classic FPS, roguelike and bullet hell are the main pillars of a title that, in spite of having some important flaws, is funny as hell.

Mothergunship has some interesting ideas, and a couple of awful gameplay choices that makes this game a little less fun that it should have been.

Video game therapy has never been so explodey. Mothergunship is a funny, exciting and creative take on an otherwise simple premise.

As it stands now, Mothergunship has a lot of likeable elements that sometimes mesh into an excellent whole, but just as often bump awkwardly against each other.

MOTHERGUNSHIP is a great FPS with some laugh out loud dialogue and a deeply entertaining gun crafting mechanic. While the roguelike elements bring the game down, it's still a delightful little game to fire up during the AAA summer drought.
